Daniel Smith | June Update

June 12, 2017

Do You Really Know Daniel?
What if it was your name typed here instead?

If, instead of saying today, June 12, 2017, Daniel has been wrongly jailed for 747 days it had your name in the headline ~ ~ how would you react?

What would your attitude be? Disheartened? Suicidal? Bitter? Lashing out at others? Mouthing curses? Bursting out with fury? Hungry for revenge?

Does this describe you?

How do you think Daniel is reacting?
Let’s take a look.

Here he is on the phone and with his sisters many years ago.

Here he is busy at work before going to Jail and here he is on a furlough over a year ago.

Do these pictures of Daniel look like the monster criminal the Prosecutor begged the Judge to lock up for 28 years?

In fact the sentencing Judge declared about Daniel: "I have no doubt that you have a real passion for helping people and that you try to be as kind as possible. And that, clearly, some people are very passionate about you and what you have done for them...And I think you’re a good enough person that you would be genuinely sad if you found out this product was actually injuring people long term."

See if you can gauge the true soul of Daniel in this recent letter:

He wrote this of the Sentencing Judge who is deciding if he should be released on bail.

"My hope, therefore, is that she will surprise me, that she will show her magnificent soul, be fair and just - unbiased - unbegrudging... even forgiving - and above all - truthful; that the best version of her honor will now be made visible for everyone to see.

And so, we pray.

love you.

Appellate Court Makes 2 Potentially Great Rulings

Ruling 1: Two months ago the Appellate Court ordered the trial Judge to reconsider releasing Daniel on Bail. She has all legal paperwork in hand but has not ruled yet.

Ruling 2: Then the Appellate Court decided to SPOTLIGHT Daniel’s appeal. They have ordered the attorneys to verbally argue his appeal in Seattle (not San Francisco) in early September. This rare occurrence obviously evidences the seriousness with which they feel about his case.

Back at Spokane’s Federal District Court

The Prosecutor and Defense Attorneys provided all their written arguments re: release Daniel on Bail. Her Honor’s ruling was expected May 26, 2017. That was 17 days ago and has not been made yet.

Today, June 12, 2017, Daniel has been wrongly jailed for 747 days.
If you include Daniel’s pre-trial House Confinement of two years -
his unjust confinement swells to 1,478 days.

Back at Sea-Tac Federal Detention Center

Daniel is very pleased with the work his defense attorney has made. He asks us to continue praying for his Release on Bail.

The Bureau of Prisons continues to trust Daniel to leave the prison and transport inmates to various appointments. This honor of driving freely outside of the prison is only given to one other inmate and proves Daniel is not a flight risk.

Daniel is a Father & Grandfather too...

Daniel has two daughters and a grandson. His loved ones, like many others without a dad to hug say: My Dad harmed no one, helped many and yet is locked far away from me. I miss him so. I weep for him night after lonely night.

Then I read this Father’s Day poem that says it all:

"Kids have a hole in their soul in the shape of their Dad. And if a father is unwilling or unable to fill that hole, it can leave a wound that is not easily healed."
- Roland Warren

Please Lord send him home to his family.

Today, June 12, 2017, Daniel has been wrongly jailed for 747 days.
If you include Daniel’s pre-trial House Confinement of two years -
his unjust confinement swells to 1,478 days.

Daniel’s Family truly needs your support and even more so during this Father’s Day time. Your loving gifts have provided their livelihood for all this time. As his Dad I tenderly ask you to help as your caring heart is leading you to do. ... Most Appreciatively, Larry.
